MAUMELLE, AR – Dr. Derek S. Long is happy to announce the newest advancement in Corneal Refractive Therapy, Paragon CRT®. Paragon CRT temporarily corrects nearsightedness (myopia) with or without moderate astigmatism.

Paragon CRT is a specially designed contact lens that gently and temporarily reshapes the cornea while the wearer sleeps. The therapy provides the patient with great vision without contacts, glasses and surgery.

”This is the option we’ve been waiting for. Now patients can have clear vision with the freedom of glasses and contact lenses without the commitment of surgery. “ Dr. Long stated. “This is an exciting time for everyone,” continued Dr. Long.

Paragon CRT has been proven both safe and effective for patients of all ages when worn during sleeping hours, earning this therapy FDA approval for nighttime use. The result is no more torn lenses, no more broken frames and no more discomfort from dry eyes. Dr. Long has been certified (an FDA requirement) to fit Paragon CRT.

Whether the patient plays sports, works in a dusty or windy environment, or simply applying make-up, with Corneal Refractive Therapy nothing gets in the way of their vision. Since there is no permanent change to the eye, the patient has the ultimate control and flexibility in their vision correction.

Now you can be free of daytime contact lenses and glasses during your daily activities without undergoing surgery and enjoy great vision! Recent clinical research combined with the latest corneal surface mapping technology, computerized manufacturing and space age oxygen-breathing materials have brought new science to corneal reshaping.

Corneal Refractive Therapy is a non-surgical process clinically developed to reshape the cornea while you sleep. The result is the temporary correction of myopia with or without moderate astigmatism.

Similar in appearance to standard contact lenses, Paragon CRT therapeutic lenses gently reshape the corneal surface during sleep and provide clear, natural vision when the lenses are removed upon waking.

Because Paragon CRT offers freedom from glasses and the hassle of wearing contact lenses during the day, this leading-edge technology can enhance the lifestyle of those requiring vision correction. Active individuals can freely participate in sports without the interference of glasses or bother of contacts. Eye irritation or dryness, sometimes associated with contact lens wear due to outside dust and pollutants, is eliminated.
